Tillandsia capillaris v. virescens formely known as Tillandsia capillaris 'Pitchfork' due to the pitch fork like appearance of the leaves.
This a fantastic and rare caulescent or stem forming variety of T. capillaris originaly collected and named by Paul T. Isley in the 1980's. It is easy to grow enjoying medium light levels and a very regular wetting and drying with good airmovement. It is quite quick growing and can make large trailing clumps.
Here are some small clumps tied on wire.
I admit this isn’t my favourite - yet! I know it’ll fill out and grow really well because all the plants from Andy are very healthy specimens. No doubt I would want to amend the four to five stars in a couple of months!
Put on some nice growth once I hung it outside during the summer. Easy to care for.
A good sized clump of a really unique and interesting plant
